Learning about community helpers is always a fun theme in early childhood! In addition to reading about community helpers, practice number order to 20 with these fun community helper counting puzzles. They make a great math center or independent activity.
Community Helper Counting Puzzles
To get these puzzles ready, I printed them out and laminated them. You may wish to print on cardstock to keep them extra sturdy since they will be cut into smaller pieces.
After cutting out each puzzle, I cut each one into 10 strips by cutting on the light gray lines.
There are 8 puzzles with community helper scenes for the following community helpers: mail carrier, firefighter, doctor, dentist, librarian, teacher, veterinarian, and farmer.
Each puzzle starts on a different number (0-20) and counts by 1’s.
This is great practice for kids to learn concepts such as before and after, as well as building up their number recognition skills.
(Grab our numbers printable pack for more number practice.)
After placing the numbers in order, a picture scene of a community helper will show!
Tip: to keep things organized and not mix up all 80 pieces at once, either place each puzzle in its own envelope, or mount on a different color of construction paper. This way you can easily see which 10 pieces go together!
